no, it won't contaminate something in it's own container (or just on it's own paper towel). pop the lid on any container you put in the microwave before you heat it (or, in the case of foods like potatoes, poke holes in them first - and just don't microwave whole eggs in the shell! ;) ).

I put a paper plate on top of my food in the microwave because our group kitchen at work has pigs in it that overcook their non-gluten-free food and it pops all over the microwave. I refuse to be their maid and clean up after them so I protect my food from incoming gluten.

And everyone's A-OK :( 'gulp'

(oh sometimes i wonder if all the "spots" cook into the air thus commixing some coagulated poison that microscopically microwaves into my food)

All microwaved gluten-free things HAVE TO BE covered when using a possibly contaminated microwave.

Either use the tupperware/ziplock container lid (slightly open) or cover with plastic wrap with only a few small steam vents. A paper plate cover will work as long as it doesn't fall off. I have learned through bad experiences that even boiling water must be covered.

ok so not tight but covered. i usually keep the tupperware lid tight rather than just on top. i try to avoid a microwave. but at work i can't
